Antropov, Moore to be held out of tonight's game ... trade in works?
There was hope the Leafs might sign Moore to a contract extension, but talks broke off Tuesday with both sides about $600,000 apart on a yearly salary. He'll try his luck on the free-agent market July 1. He has had a real solid season with the Leafs, having finally been given a chance to prove himself. We believe the Chicago Blackhawks should take a long look at him. Great pickup as a No. 3 center.
It's no surprise that Antropov, who will be an unrestricted free agent July 1, will be dealt. GM Brian Burke had no desire to keep him. We wonder whether Columbus might be a good fit for him.
